Simply Joyful Podcast with Kristi Clover | Encouragement for your Faith and Family

The podcast that encourages and inspires you to find simple ways to bring more joy into your day. Whether you are looking for a little encouragement in your faith, family, home, homeschooling (if you do) -- or just life -- then this is the podcast for you! Let's get real and talk about the challenges that we face as women in our day-to-day lives. My guests and I will discuss practical tips and "hacks" about how to find harmony in relationships, order in your home, and how to add a little good ol' fun to your week. My prayer is that this podcast will bless you and add a smile to your face (even if it causes a few new wrinkles) -- and to hopefully help you "Live Simply" and "Be Joyful.”

… Okay! Now onto this week's encouraging episode!

I always love the opportunity to talk with Heidi St. John. She is so encouraging and inspirational...and downright funny! She has a knack for helping moms to see that the messiness of motherhood is NORMAL! We're not alone. Sometimes we forget to find the humor in the hard days.

I'm really excited about Heidi's new book, Becoming Mom Strong: How to Fight with All That's in You for Your Family and Your Faith! This book is not only laced with her humor and wit, but the stories she shares are so real. I laughed my way through this book—because it's real life. Mom life is often filled with so many hilarious moments. (If you can't laugh at it, you'll just end up crying in the corner).

It is crazy to think about what our kids are going up against these days in this culture. Heidi’s new book is a challenge to moms to rise up and be strong their faith — to be strong in their example to their kids and embrace motherhood.

I can't wait to have you listen in to my conversation with Heidi.

I hope you enjoyed this week's podcast! My prayer is always that you will be blessed and encouraged by each episode.

Live Simply. Be Joyful.
